Part 5 - Appendix 2 - Protocol on the relationship between Officers and Members of Gloucestershire County Council

Appendix 2 - protocol on the relationship between Officers and Members of Gloucestershire County Council of the Code of Conduct for Employees.

  1. The range of Members’ legitimate perspectives when discharging their different roles and responsibilities and the potential for contact between Officers and Members in a variety of circumstances, creates a variety of situations that have the potential to cause both groups difficulties. There are three principal sources of conflict:

(i)               Actual or apparent failure by Officers to act in accordance with the principle of political neutrality;
(ii)               Unreasonable pressure by Members on Officers;
(iii)              Blurring of Officers’ and Members’ public and private roles.
